The Menlo Park girls gymnastics team competed at the Mardi Gras Invitational on Feb. 18.  The Junior Olympic meet was hosted by the North Bay Athletic Gymnastics Association.  Sophia Simon, a level 8 gymnast, placed 4th on vault, 3rd on beam and 2nd all-around.  This was a major event for Sophia as she was out for a few weeks due to a broken finger.  Sophia’s outstanding performance qualified for the Level 8 State Championship meet which will take place in March.  If she qualifies with an all-around score of 34 she will compete at the Regional Championships in April.  Sophia has been a gymnast with Menlo Park Gymnastics since she was two years old.
